comment Does a CA need to have the same type of key as the certificates it is signing? RSA / Elliptic Curve (EC/ECDH/ECDSA)
I am making an SSL server, but ultimately want to migrate to using EC cryptography instead of just RSA. (ECC is a server requirement, but RSA is acceptable in the interim.) I wanted to make a CA that would be able to handle both RSA and EC client certificate requests, but didn't know if there were any restrictions on what CA's are capable of signing, or what is the most efficient way to set it up.
